Dwight Howard Says He Played With a Bunch of Nobodies in Orlando

 

http://blacksportson...ies-in-orlando/

 

Asked about his time in Orlando and his sulky attitude at the end of his time there, Howard took an unwarranted shot at his former teammates.

 

“I always say, hey, my team in Orlando was a team full of people nobody wanted, and I was the leader. I led that team with a smile on my face.”

Howard spoke about the difference between him and Kobe and rumors of them fighting.

 

“Do I care about winning? That’s the only thing I care about. We have two different ways of showing it.”

 

“Kobe never called me out. None of that stuff happened. People are always going to lie and make stuff up. What I know is that we have stuff that happens in the locker room that stays in the locker room. I would never repeat what happens in the locker room.”

 

Everything happens for a reason, so the good, the bad, the ugly with whatever people say. A lot of things that come out in media, they’re not even true. We’ve never, ever come to fists. never shouted at each other.”

 

When asked about the possibility of returning to the Lakers, Howard took another opportunity to state that he intended on pursuing free agency but was all in with the Lakers for this season.

 

“I’m all in. I’m here now, and what I want to do is win a championship. That’s my goal for this season.”

“It’s my choice. That’s what free agency is. You have the opportunity to decide what you want to do with your career.”

My advice to Dwight for the rest of the season:

 

STFU, you're hurting yourself every time you open your mouth. Go play ball and let your actions speak for themselves

Well first of all, there's nothing wrong with what he said, secondly, the media effing loves twisting things. What kinda bullshiz is that headline?

The media isn't interested in the "truth". They'll build you up,  twist your words, and break you down. I agree with Dwight, but these media folks aren't trying to help him.

Hardly true, it's same ignorant things people say about lebrons cav teams. D12 in Orlando had rashard lewis, turkoglu, jammer nelson, reddick, Courtney Lee, gortat etc... Hardly no bodies and most of these guys were at their prime not like today. Lewis, turkoglu, Nelson each could have been all stars those magic years. No body takes a team of "no bodies" to the finals not even MJ so just stop dwight, it only makes you look worse.

Allen Iverson did, but I do agree with you on the rest.

As I recall, Nelson and Lewis were all stars one year and Turkoglu was a pretty good player in those years.  Gortat is a very serviceable big man and Lee is a decent player.  They won high 50's games, went to the finals, etc.  I guess Dwight did all that himself?

 

He didnt get to play with anyone of Kobe's caliber, but those guys listed above are probably better than any player other than Kobe on the Lakers' current roster.

God i hate Dwight Howard...

 

 

Turkgalo is a boarderline Hall of Famer...

Rashad Lewis was the 2nd highest paid player in the NBA...

 

 

They also has other good players around him...

 

I always found dwight howard and his antics kinda of annoying when he was with Orlando...

Now, as a Laker, he is easily in my top 3 most disliked players in the NBA...
